With some debug info:

But no difference between the good and the bad case, except for the nfs
failures.

CONFIG_FIXED_PHY=y
CONFIG_SMSC_PHY=y

Just the smsc,lan9115 node, cfr. arch/arm/boot/dts/r8a73a4-ape6evm.dts

Added a hook into "nfs: server not responding", which prints:

    MII_BMCR = 0x1900

i.e. BMCR_PDOWN = 0x0800 is still set.
